Hi to all,
I managed to crash 2010 in a most spectacular fashion.
Somehow, I lost the video driver for the ATI card. The system rebooted to a text login and I ran PCC.
Although I selected the correct video driver and resolution, when I tried 'test' the system dissapeared into nomans land.
Rebooting brought me back to the text login.
Trying to apt-get the ATI driver, crashed, saying it could not load it..
48 hours later, I gave up and reinstalled 2009.2 to start again. This time the ATI driver was installed, I think, at least the screen looks good, but if I try to run the 'ati catalyst' it reports no ATI driver installed.
I am still in 2009.2 preparing to upgrade to 2010, but why does the catalyst not run and why is there such a problem getting the ATI card recognised??
As always, your thoughts will be greatfully received.
